Betty Jo from 'Petticoat Junction' Was Married to a Co-Star Who Died in 2016

The sixties was a nostalgic era that gave us legendary stars, epic shows, and fabulous fashions - one of these came in the form of "Petticoat Junction."

Linda Kaye Henning, well known for her many screen roles and especially as Betty Jo Bradley on the CBS series "Petticoat Junction," is now 74. In 2016, she experienced the death of her ex-husband, and former co-star, Mike Minor who was 75.

Henning's biography on FrostSnow describes a colorful career that highlights her most notable role as Betty Jo on "Petticoat Junction."

Born on September 16, 1944, in Los Angeles, she began her illustrious career as a teenager. Acting in well-known productions, as well as musicals, she made a name for herself on shows like "Bye Bye Birdie," "Gidget," "Bus Stop," and "Rebel Without a Cause."

Later, she went on to appear on "The Ed Sullivan Show," "Adam-12," "Happy Days," "Mork and Mindy," "Sliders," "Hunter," and "Capitol." After her separation from Minor, Henning went on to marry an American actor, Ashby Adams in 1994. They are still together after 23 years.

Her current net worth is $1 million and her thus far illustrious career appears to have no sign of stopping any time soon.
